The Apapa port chapter of the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) have visited the Port Manager, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Lagos Port Operations, Mrs Bola Olotu to lament the allege corruption within the truck call up system operated by the agency.
Chairman of ANLCA at Apapa, Mr. Dom Obi who led the delegation alleged that extortion of truckers and stakeholders is a major factor that has hampered the NPA call up system.
Mr Obi urged the NPA Port Manager to take action on the Llilypond Transit Park for easily movement of trucks.
Recall that the NPA recently reopened the Lillypond transit park after months of being shut down as a result of clash between the police and truck drivers over allegation of extortion.
The NPA uses the transit park to operate a manual call up system for trucks going into Apapa port to load cargo.
On her part, the NPA Port Manager, Mrs Bolanle Olotu assured the visiting ANLCA members that the authority has come up with a systematic process that will stop the bad eggs who are destroying the call up system.
